A toffee/ caramel overload! You really have to sniff quite hard to get past all of that but there is some leafy herbal notes along with some gentle, dry and dusty peat smoke and some light briny fruit. The palate is full and toffee rich, and unfortunately it does flatten and subdue the palate. However given some time and ruminating a bit of bright orange fruit appears as does some pleasantly dusty peat smoke on the middle. The intensity slowly builds with some salinity and a perfumed note. In fact it becomes quite sweet towards the end, finishing with some wood notes. In conclusion it starts rather dull but it does build rather well.
